Conference History: Our first conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia in 2012 was a small meeting on education and training. The following year in 2013, we expanded the scope to include the topics on business research. We continued to meet in Dubrovnik each year, and over the years the conference attracted participants from all over the World. We return to Dubrovnik in 2017 for the 6th conference edition.


Conference Mission: The Dubrovnik conference is our summer meeting, and as such, our initial mission has been to collaboratively discuss the mid-year research projects, which in our experience include finished or nearly finished research papers. We still aim to provide a forum where researchers can get a peer-review feedback from generally a multidisciplinary perspective.


Conference Topics: We invite research from business disciplines (finance, management, marketing, human resources, information technology, economics, accounting, international business). We also realize that a modern business research crosses over to many social sciences, thus we also invite the submission of research from legal studies, psychology, sociology, regional studies, culture, communications/media and other.


Keynote speech: TBA
